Tips for Effective ProPresenter Streaming
Planning and Preparation
Like all aspects of a church service, thoughtful planning and preparation matter. Take time to coordinate with the pastoral staff involved in leading the service. Familiarize yourself with the order of worship, including songs, scriptures, sermon points, and other elements. Knowing the service’s details and ministry focus will help you understand the heart behind each moment. This understanding will help you as you build the ProPresenter presentation. Once you know the flow of the service, you can be intentional about the media you choose to broadcast. You will be able to create smooth transitions appropriate for each moment in worship.
Choosing the Right Visuals for ProPresenter Streaming
While there is always room for subjective preferences, there are some best practices regarding the visuals used in ProPresenter streaming. In general, you want to select visuals that align with the theme of your worship service, enhancing the message being conveyed. Be mindful of color schemes, font sizes, and motion effects to create a visually appealing and distraction-free experience for your online congregation.
Take time to understand the direction and heart behind the worship service. The visuals should align with each element’s overall tone and purpose. Ensure all images, backgrounds, and videos are high quality with proper resolutions for livestreaming. Low-quality pictures or videos can be distracting and may not represent the intended message effectively. Finally, always prioritize legibility when using text-based visuals. Ensure the font size and style are easily read, even on smaller screens or devices.
